Family Pick - The Illustrated Bible New Testament!

The Gospel of JohnI'm very happy to announce my new "Family Pick" . . . the Illustrated New Testament on CD!  Neely Press has released their complete Illustrated Bible on two cds - one for the Old Testament and one for the New Testament - "the Word of God for the child of God in all of us!" This Bible is available in the International Children's Bible and New American Standard Version and as it's creators say, is not "just another children's Bible storybook. In other words, we didn't want to have Bible pictures alongside words which are a retelling of God's Word, the Holy Scriptures. We wanted to draw attention to, magnify and clarify the actual Word of God. In those words lies the power of the Holy Spirit to change the lives of children and adults alike. In the same way written illustrations, or 'word pictures' are used to help make an idea easy to understand and memorable, our visual illustrations will make the actual Word of God easier to understand than ever before."

This CD is an amazing tool which you can use in your children's ministry and at home with your own families! It is licensed for the original purchaser to make as many copies as they like for use in their own ministry . . . which means you can print out copies of the Bible lessons you are teaching in your classes for use in your classes and for children to take home! Or families could purchase the CD and print out copies for them to use at home with their children to not only use for family devotions, but anytime they are reading to their children!

I love how this Cd combines not only beautiful, colorful illustrations, but "word-for-word Scripture" for a combination which will capture the attention and interest of children, and adults. This is an actual Bible and is one you will find your children want to read! I like the icb for use with children as the Bible scholars who worked on this Bible chose words which would be understandable by a third grade child. 

Two huge bonuses I am thrilled to share with you . . . first of all, you can download 14 complete Bible Stories/Books from the website - Free Illustrated Bible - for free! Secondly, I am happy to say Neely Press not only sent me one Illustrated Bible New Testament CD for review, but they are also making another available for me to give away! If you have "liked" About the Children's Department using the "find us on facebook" tab in the box ON THE BLOG then you are entered in my drawing! If you haven't "liked" this blog yet, take a moment to do so right now and you will be entered in my drawing. It is this simple! Please share About the Children's Department with the people you know so they can be in my drawing, too and take a few moments to check out the Illustrated Bible New Testament for use in your ministry and home!
